Featured Review: Triangular Markers

Guiding little hands toward proper writing grip!

Check out this featured review of the Triangular Markers from Granna, a very satisfied Discount School Supply customer and grandparent from Maiden, N.C.:

"Love these - no lids!"
Pros: Easy Storage, Lightweight, Sturdy, Safe

Review: "These markers are just the right size for our grandchildren. I LOVE them because they have no lids to worry about getting in their mouths. You press on them a little, and the colors start flowing. I even colored with them for awhile to see how easy they were to use. The shape makes it so easy for little hands to hold, and they do not roll. Great product, will be buying more."

Bottom Line: "Yes, I would recommend this to a friend"
Cap-free design prevents ink in the Triangular Markers from drying out. Builds independence and confidence as children learn to draw with more purpose and control. Triangle shape keeps markers from rolling off of the table, eliminating frustration. Gentle pressure on the tip gets the ink flowing. Easily washes from skin and clothing. Ages 2 years and up.

Featured Review: Colorations® Washable Glitter Paint, 16 oz.

Check out this featured review of the Colorations® Washable Glitter Paint from Jill, a very satisfied Discount School Supply customer and teacher, from Goshen, IN.


Pros: Good color variety.

Review: "Last Christmas in our Pre-K class, we used these beautiful paints to create amazing Christmas tree decorations. We bought a box of the clear balls. After removing the metal top, we had each child choose 2 or 3 colors which we poured into the ball. The child then turned the ball all around to mix up the paint, while making sure that the inside is entirely covered with paint. Turn upside down to dry (and drain!) and 2 days later they are dry enough to put the metal top back on. These make beautiful christmas ornaments for the children to take home! This year I am also buying a set to use at home. Our daughter and exchange student will LOVE this project! Give this a try! You won't be sorry!"

Bottom Line:
"Yes, I would recommend this to a friend."

Bold, vibrant color just loaded with sparkling glitter! The versatility and quality of this paint will amaze you as much as our other Colorations® paints do! The glitter creates a rich, jewel look, and the glitter does not fall off when dry. This high-quality, versatile, washable glitter paint is available in 16 oz. bottles in: blue, gold, green, orange, purple, red, silver, turquoise, magenta, black, yellow or the set of all 11. Non-toxic and AP Certified. Bottles are recyclable.

She was so pleased when we took them to her. She said the children now had a huge bag of pom-poms to choose from when during their art. Makes a great gift for a teacher who has to supply her class with materials."

Featured Review: Decorate Your Own Visors

Let the sun shine in!

Check out this review of the Decorate Your Own Visors - Set of 24 from a very satisfied Discount School Supply customer and parent from Seattle, WA:

5-Star Review / 4.5-Star Overall
"Not just for making visors!"

Pros: stores easily, easy to-use, "inexpensive fun"

Best Uses: parties, art

Review: "I cut these visors to create a set of inexpensive kitty ears for my 4-year-old girl's kitty cat-themed birthday party. To make the ears, I took a visor and cut triangles where the ears should be, and then the kids wore the visors upside down so they stood upright as ears. Each kid got to color and decorate his or her own ears. We used face paint for nose and whiskers. The kids loved it! An inexpensive solution and a lot of fun."

Bottom Line: "Yes, I would recommend this to a friend."

You'll be protected in style with your own personalized visor from Discount School Supply. Decorate with paint, markers, crayons, colored pencils, glitter and more for one-of-a-kind sylish designs. Sturdy cardstock visors are 3-3/4"H x 8-3/4"W. Includes elastic.

Sand & Water All Year Long for Early Learners

But summer doesn't have to end just because the month changes. You can recreate that unique summer sensation of sand and water in your learning center with a Sand and Water Table from Discount School Supply!
